Kaely made me feel calm during my second  childbirth experience.While this wasn’t our first child, it was our first time having a child thousands of miles from our family. She was able to support me during labor with pain management techniques and also helped my husband help me so he could be a part of it. She was also extremely helpful in the postpartum period as she gave advice and tips on how to start breastfeeding on  the right foot and how to recover well.

Kaely is a dear friend of mine! She is a wonderful mother, wife, lactation consultant and doula! You may wonder how a dear friend might function as a labor and delivery doula, I don't think many people could do this well at all, too many dynamics at plat... but, NOT so for KAELY! She was all that my husband and I didn't know we needed- a calm comforter, supporter, cheerleader and advocate (and photographer!) I had been laboring at home most of the day and after checking in with Kaely throughout the day, letting her know my progress, and just as we'd planned, she came over to my house in the evening and helped me through the later stages of labor, packing up the car and making the 30 minute drive with my husband and I to the hospital. When we arrived I was 7 cm dilated. Kaely helped to relieve the pressure of contractions, keep me comfortable while stuck to the monitor and warded off the unhelpful nurses when they couldn't believe I wouldn't have an IV, didn't want another cervical exam and refused to lie on my back. She didn't flinch when a contraction got a little intense and I got a little loud in her ear as she supported me :) She was a huge help to my husband so he could focus on the baby and me. I could go on and on. She is so easy to talk to, has a huge heart, loves what she does and knows her stuff! She is wise, she knows when and how to advocate, she is a treasure and I recommend her to anyone I know looking for a doula!
